When you first turn on the pro 95 and the dual trunking screen is still on insert (gently) a pin or straightend paper clip in the small hole just above and to the right of the external power plug. That will reset the radio. Once it is reset (wait until it finishes resetting) you may need to initialize it. Turn it off then back on, while it is still displaying the dual trunking screen press "0" and then the "1". Do not turn the radio off until the Initializing is finished.
Now re program your radio if you with to use the "SCAN" button. Other wise you should be able to use the "search" button to select the service you wish to listen to.
Hope this helps.

Channelslockedout


Hi Barney,

I take it that you have frequencies programmed into the scanner, so this is the solution to your problem.

On the keyboard of your radio scanner you will find a button marked L/O or L/Out, when your scanner is in scanning mode, press the Mon or Hold button, this will stop it from scanning.

Now select the channel of your programmed frequencies, starting with Channel 1. To do this press Hold followed by 1, if this channel shows a L/O icon on the LCD screen, press the L/O button and the L/O icon should go out. continue through each channel, until you undo the L/O from each channel by following the steps I have described above, once you have removed the L/O icon from all the channels that were locked out you can then press the Scan button and you'll be listening to the frequencies that you programmed into your scanner.

Note: If you have not programmed any frequencies into your radio scanner, then you will not be able to hear anything, as nothing programmed to hear and L/O is the default setting on all channels, until each one is programmed with the frequencies of your choice.

How to Program a frequency?

Press Prog button, select channel to store frequency, E.G:Ch:1 168.5000

Remember to always press the (.) decimal button in the correct place, else you will get ERR message on the LCD, now press Enter button, you now have the first frequency stored in you radio scanner on Channel 1, now press the Delay button, so that it doesn't start scanning for 2-3 seconds after a transmission is received.

Continue with the above setup one channel at a time until you have programmed your radio scanner to your liking.

I hope I have helped you in finding the solution to your query.

Regards,
Peter

How to tell what the buttons do?


The HOLD key lets you freeze the scanner on an active channel. For instance, if the scanner stops on channel 3, and there's a lot of action there. you can press HOLD to lock the scanner on that channel until you press the SCAN key. Repeatedly pressing the HOLD key will manually advance the selected channel.

SCAN releases a HOLD asnd will also take the unit out of PROGRAM or SEARCH modes and start it scanning the frequencies that you've programmed.

FUNCTION selects the secondary (lower) function of a key. For example, pressing FUNCTION and then the E (ENTER) key will switch the scanner to Pgm (Programming) mode - which lets you enter and store frequencies into the unit's memory so that you can scan them later.

All keyboard functions are explained in detail in the scanner operating manual, which you can download/print here:

How do i program my BC 55xlt uniden scanner?


To program:

Turn on radio.

It will be in scan mode. Press Manual (orange button) to stop scanning.
Press Manual button to step through channels to get to the one you want.
(Or press channel number and then manual button)

If "LockOut" is displayed it means this channel isn't being "Scanned."
Pressing Lockout will toggle the status.

To program:

Select channel. Use keypad to enter frequency. Use "E" for Enter
key. If the radio displays an E this means Error. Usually, the
frequency you typed in is outside of the capabilities of the scanner.

Once you hit the E you will immediately start hearing anything that's
out there on the frequency you entered.

Push the "Review" button and the scanner will display the frequency
that is programmed for the channel. A "-" will be displayed for the
decimal point.

If the weather band is working, the scanner should be working. To verify operation:

- Move the MODE switch to "Scanner" and power the unit ON.
- Press the SVC button (chrome button below display).
- Press POL (chrome button below display).
- Turn the SQUELCH knob towards the left until scanning stops and you hear a hissing noise.
- Turn the SQUELCH knob towards the right slowly until scanning resumes.

If the scanner stops on anything - even noise, it's working.

To Program:

- Slide the MODE key to "Scanner."
- Power the unit ON
- Turn the SQUELCH knob to the left until you hear a hissing noise, then turn it the right - slowly - until scanning resumes.
- Press HOLD.
- Press E (PGM).
- Press 0, 1.
- Press HOLD.
- Enter your first frequency, including the decimal point (EX: 156.055).
- Press the E (PGM) key.
- Press the UP arrow (above the SCAN key). Scanner will move to channel 02.
- Enter your second frequency, including the decimal point.
- Press the E (PGM) key.

You should now have two frequencies programmed. Press the SCAN key . . .

If it still will not accept programming, let me know.

Lost manual and cannot program scanner bc145xl


Hi,
Try these instructions from Wiki.answers

Turn on unit.
Press MANUAL button.
Press MANUAL button again to select the channel you want to program. Note the channel in the display. If there is a hyphenated symbol in the upper left corner the channel has been locked out. Press the LOCKOUT button once to remove the symbol or press the LOCKOUT button to lock a channel out. To find out if there is a frequency programed into that channel, press the PREVIEW button. Each digit of the frequency that is stored in memory will be displayed in the LED display. To program a new frequency into that channel, simply press the digits of the frequency you want, including the decimal point. Press the "E" keypad key to enter it into memory. If you get a "E" displayed in the LED display, the frequency was entered wrong, is not a valid frequency or is out of range for the scanner. Last but least, the scanner is not working properly. If the channel is active, (communications going over it) set SQUELCH to higher number, until you hear the communications or just noise. To set the SQUELCH, select a channel that has only noise and turn it down to the point the noise disappears. You make have to readjust it to your liking. Once you have the channels programed you can select the SCAN button to listen to all the channels or select the MANUAL button to listen to just one channel. If there are channels that you don't want to hear during the scan mode, go to MANUAL and select the channel you don't want to hear and press LOCKOUT button. Then press SCAN again it will only scan channels you want to hear.

Hope this helps.

Scanner not working.


I had a simular problem with my HpScanner. What I found myself, was the computer stopped recongnizing the program after a few uses. Check your computer programs and see if it's still in. Then if its not, reload it, or simply restart/reboot your computer and see if it recongnizes it then. I believe its a glitch in the programing from the scanner itself. Also just always check if your connections are easily tugged on, may have come loose. They may look connected, but the littelest separation would cause it not to function either. Let me know what happens.
